If spouses have entered into a petition for divorce, can one spouse file a separate tax return and claim the kids as dependents without consulting the other spouse and without prior approval from the family court?

This has happend to me. The iRS says that the first to file and claim the dependent, as long as the tax filing is entitled to claim that dependent, gets it. Otherwise, the only remedy is to sue under the divorce settlement, which noone would do as it would cost more in attorney fees than it would save.
